DigitalOcean Droplets – Debian Install

Look people – This is a bare bones debian install – to get a webserver going…(or basically anything installed)

After logging in with ‘admin’ and your private key via SSH

sudo nano /etc/apt/source.list

deb wheezy main 
deb-src wheezy main

deb wheezy/updates main 
deb-src wheezy/updates main

deb wheezy-updates main 
deb-src wheezy-updates main


You will have to update missing sw sources to the above.


sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install tasksel #key install sw for complex installs


Then; Set up a webserver.

sudo tasksel install web-server 
sudo apt-get install build-essential php5-dev php5-gd php-pear


#make the webserver start on boot via remote control file

sudo update-rc.d apache2 defaults


#Personally I cannot function with out the locate command!

sudo apt-get install locate



sudo updatedb #update the directory database


anyway that should help a lot in getting many setup to use the service!
